The Penguins have resigned four players to two-way deals, including promising prospect Eric Tangradi.

The Penguins reached two-way deals with three prospects who played minor roles for the Penguins last year, including left winger Eric Tangradi.

Tangradi, 23, spent the majority of his year at the Penguin's AHL affiliate in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, where he notched 18 goals, but also played 242 games for the big league club, registering two assists. Tangradi has been with the Penguins organization since a trade in 2009 brought the former 42nd pick over from Anaheim. The Philadelphia native is big player at 6-foot-4 and plays like it, with the prospect's game having a physical flair.

The club also signed three defensemen: Brian Strait, 24, had a plus-51 rating for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, making nine appearances for Pittsburgh. Robert Bortuzzo, 23, played in the NHL for the first time last season, getting on the ice six times for Pittsburgh. Alex Grant has yet to play in the NHL, but the 23-year old had 10 goals in the AHL.
